Marilyn Hudson Director,
"Prior to Warriors in Khaki there was very little published information available on World War I and the Indian men from North Dakota who served at that time. The Knudsons' extensive research and compilation of data of this era has now closed this void of information. They have given us a very valuable reference book .... We are indebted to Mike and Ann for their hard work, their perseverance and their obvious commitment to the Indian people of North Dakota in undertaking this daunting task."

Susan Dingle, Past President
The Knudsons' book Warriors in Khaki details service, awards, battle accomplishments, and service affiliation of North Dakota Native Americans of the Forth Berthold Indian reservation (Mandan, Hidatsa, and Arikara Nation), Standing Rock Sioux, Fort Totten Sioux, and Turtle Moundain Band Chippewa who served in World War I, information not readily available in any existing work. The compilation fills a need and helps to recognise the continuing patriotism and over-the-top contribution of North Dakota Native Americans in the great conflict" Susan Dingle, Past President, Bismarck-Mandan Historical and Genealogical Society
